We are thinking about holding a small ceremony/elopement and moving our celebration to a later date. Would you be able to take photos for both?

I LOVE intimate ceremonies and elopements! Now, a lot of this will depend on what the regulations are for the date you are looking to hold your intimate ceremony. Send me an email with your thoughts and we can talk through options! I want to do everything I can to safely capture your special moments!

Will there be fees associated with rescheduling my wedding?

No. Even if this is your second or third time rescheduling, there will not be a fee associated with moving your date.

What will I do if I have to cancel my wedding due to COVID-19 restrictions?

You don't have to cancel. Rescheduling for a future date is the best way to make sure you don't lose any retainers you have already paid to secure your vendors, and to give you and your partner the wedding day you always envisioned! If you don't want to reschedule, another option is sizing down the guest count to meet the standards whether it's 10 people, 50 people, or 100 people.

Does the gathering limit include vendors?

From what I have been told, yes, it does include vendors in the total count. Most vendors that would be with you for your full day usually have smaller teams of 1-3 people but catering staff and bands tend to have a larger team.

What vendors should we contact first?

All of them. You have paid a retainer fee with your vendors and are likely on a payment schedule with each of them. You will need to see what each vendors policy is for payments when rescheduling. Here is the order I would consider:

1. Your venue and planner are the most important.

2. Your photographer, videographer and any vendor that is a single person business.

3. Vendors that have a team and are known to do multiple weddings a day, they will have more flexibility.

Once all vendors have confirmed a date, put them all in a group email to send the final confirmation, this is a good way for us to connect! Your vendors are a team of professionals all working together to to serve you!


Can we get a marriage license and still get married in 2020?

Yes! Right now only emergency marriage licenses are being granted, that is expected to change after June 5th 2020. Some couples have eloped this year in addition to still planning their larger ceremony and reception on their rescheduled date! If you choose to get married in a small intimate gathering this year I am happy to come photograph it, please reach out once the stay at home order is lifted!

Most important of all, please stay happy and healthy!

I'm here to help in any way possible.  Email me at hrk@heatherryanphotography.com.

Sending ALL the virtual hugs your way.
